"Let the Little Children Come to Me"

Akon (the boy in blue) interacting with one of our volunteers
After sharing a Bible story at Moore Park with a group of kids, one boy wanted to stick around and look through the Beginner's Bible. As the rest of the kids went with the staff to play tag, Nicole stayed with Akon who is around 9 years old to answer his inquiries. He flipped through the Bible asking many questions, which gave her the opportunity to share the gospel with him. Akon is not from a Christian home so his interest in the Bible is very exciting! He asked Nicole if we brought any other books. As she looked through our bin, the gospel cube caught Akon’s attention and he wanted her to explain it to him. They spent a good 15-20 minutes together as he soaked in all of this Good News!

We love ministering to the children through games and facepainting and often pray for opportunities to share the gospel in a way they can understand and receive. This seemed to be one of those special opportunities and we are thankful for what God is doing in his heart. Please pray that the seeds we've sown go deep, and that Akon and many other kids would give their lives to Jesus. Thank you!
